Size 14 Tara Lynn Brings Today’s Quote

On the best part of being a plus-size model:

“I like to believe that my pictures are used as an inspiration for girls who struggle with a poor self-image. It encourages them. I get a lot of messages from girls who tell me that looking at my pictures, or from one of my colleagues, makes them feel better and more secure in their body. They are happy to see someone they can identify with.”

… says Tara in Spanish Magazine S Moda.

 

Heidi Klum: “I never really fit in the clothes. I was always too curvy”

On how she was too curvy for high fashion:

“I was never a catwalk model. I never really fit in the clothes. I was always too curvy, I was always a lingerie model, even when I was still in Germany when I won my modelling contest I would do lingerie and swimsuits because I was always too curvy for high fashion.”

… says Heidi, who is looking quite skinny these days.

Rebel Wilson: “It’s very hard to laugh at someone who’s very attractive”

Joking about her weight:

One time I got X-rayed by a chiropractor and he goes, ‘You know, you don’t actually have a big build.’ It’s like, you’re just fat!

On her success in Hollywood:

Bigger girls do better in comedy. I don’t know why. Maybe because people find it easier to laugh. It’s very hard to laugh at someone who’s very attractive, I think. And normally those people don’t have a great personality anyway.

On whether she would like to lose weight:

I do have these dreams, like, ‘What if I just went to a health farm and lost 50 kilos? What would happen? Would it affect my career?’ But then I think, that’s never going to happen.

… says 28 year-old Rebel.

Benedict Cumberbatch has ‘no regrets’ about Sophie & the Cumberbaby

Benedict Cumberbatch has ‘no regrets’ about Sophie & the Cumberbaby

131189PCN_WeinsteinParty_48

Benedict Cumberbatch has two new interviews, and thankfully there’s nary a mention of “colored actors” (although he does call himself a “white boy” at one point). I was going to excerpt from his Rolling Stone interview, but it’s kind of boring – you can read it here. He literally says that “Alan Turing should be on bank notes” line for the millionth time. The LA Times piece was a lot better, perhaps because they spoke to Bendy in person. He wore a Pink Floyd t-shirt and sat by a fire pit, watching movie stars wander around Palm Springs. That’s seriously the setting for this LAT piece. Some highlights:

Acting silly at awards shows: “I’m drunk. That’s not actually true. I wish I could blame the evils of alcohol and say, “Kids: Don’t go there.” But that … happens when I’m sober. It would have happened. And I say “drunk,” but I had a little slurp of a tiny miniature. It was just the high of the whole thing. A friend of mine did literally say, “Get a photo of U2 if you can.” Not with them. Just of them. And I thought, “I don’t have my camera phone and I’m not going to ask for a selfie with U2.”

His jumping photobombs: “White boy can jump.”

Best advice for negotiating Hollywood: “I’ve been chugging away in my career 10 years. That helps you prepare for the exposure. And there are things now which make it easier to escape the obsession with self. If you have someone you love and you’re devoted to them and it’s a proper devotional love — as I do in my life — there’s nothing better than that tonic. First of all, you have your world between you and that person. But also, being devoted to that person takes you away from yourself. There’s someone more important. Not that that’s a reason to be in a relationship, but it’s a very healthy byproduct of it when you’re doing such an obsessional job as acting can be.”

His regret at not being a father by the age of 32: “When I was growing up, I had a weird obsession with 32 being the mark of adulthood and that was part of what I thought that might mean, naively. It was just a hunch about a number. I was always a bit of an old soul. I wasn’t really interested in being young. I mean, I wasn’t eccentric. But I’m glad it didn’t happen. Things happen for a reason. And I’m definitely with the right person for that. So no regrets …”

[From The LAT]

Towards the end of the interview, they get interrupted by David Oyelowo and David and Bendy chat amicably, then David leaves and Bendy talks about the historical accuracy in films, and whether TIG should have shown more of Alan Turing’s homosexuality. I found his thoughts interesting, for what it’s worth. Incidentally, Benedict has joined Stephen Fry’s campaign to pardon the more than 49,000 men who were arrested and charged with crimes involving their homosexuality – you can read more about it here.

As for Benedict referencing his “devotional love” for Sophie Hunter… eh, I don’t know what you want me to say. I don’t think he’s really “devoted” to her. I think they were casually dating and she got pregnant and they decided to make a go of it. What’s interesting to me is that he’s trying to convince himself that this is some kind of epic love story.

Last thing – Sophie Hunter sat front-row at the Valentino show this week. She sat beside Anna Wintour!! This means that Sophie will be wearing Valentino at the Oscars or her wedding (or both). And that Sophie is probably going to be featured in Vogue very soon.

Matt Damon, Ben Affleck & Chris Evans claim they deflated Tom Brady’s balls

Matt Damon, Ben Affleck & Chris Evans claim they deflated Tom Brady’s balls

FFN_Damon_Matt_STOIANOV_012815_51639004

Shh… we have to speak quietly and quickly before CB comes in here, yelling about her man Matt Damon. These photos are of Matt leaving his LA gym a few days ago. From the looks of things, he was working on his arms. I try to hide my Damon Love away for fear of being shanked by CB, but g—damn he looks good here. I like my Damon with some meat on his bones.

Anyway, Matty D (as I call him) is very much a Boston boy, so it’s no secret that he’s rooting for the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. But with #DeflateGate still percolating through the media, Matty D is one of several Boston Boys sticking up for their Tom Brady. Jimmy Kimmel pointed out last night that there are some people posting YouTube videos “confessing” to being the person to deflate the balls, so Kimmel decided to have some fun with it by bringing together some famous Boston Boys, like Matty D, Ben Affleck, Chris Evans and John Krasinski (who is actually from Newton, not Boston). The celebs start appearing at 1:30 minute mark but the whole video is pretty great.

Maybe it’s because I’m so used to hearing Southern accents, but I do find the Boston accent rather charming. I prefer it on Matty D rather than Affleck though, sorry not sorry. Affleck doesn’t look good with the haircut. But Matty D is perfect. And Bedhead’s boyfriend Chris Evans wore a fake mustache that’s pretty amazing.

Did Tom Brady try to ‘ban’ Gisele Bundchen from the Super Bowl?

Did Tom Brady try to ‘ban’ Gisele Bundchen from the Super Bowl?

wenn21325022

The Super Bowl is this Sunday, and on a gossip-level, I could not be less interested in the actual game. I want to see if there are any more ball-shenanigans and I’m interested to see if Gisele Bundchen is going to alienate a bunch of people again, but other than that… yeah, not interested. I’m probably going to go the movies. Still, let’s talk about Gisele! Back in 2012, when the Patriots lost to the Giants, Gisele mouthed off to a reporter right after the game. She was trying to defend Tom Brady and she ended up throwing his teammates under the bus when she said: “My husband canot f—king throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time.” Allegedly, the Patriots were super-pissed at Gisele about that. Obviously.

So is Gisele coming to this year’s Super Bowl in Arizona? Probably. Although she might only come on game day. On the NFL’s Media Day earlier this week, Tom was asked where Gisele was and he replied, “She’s at home [in Boston] taking care of everybody, all the kids. She’s gonna come out this weekend. There’s obviously a lot going on with media day and our preparations [here], so she’s taking care of the home front.” But OK! Magazine (I know, I know) claims that Tom would love it if Gisele would just STAY HOME completely:

The University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona will be completely packed for Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday, but New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is hoping one person doesn’t attend: his wife, Gisele Bündchen! A source revealed to OK! Magazine that Tom is “desperate” to keep wife from attending the game on Feb. 1.

“He knows there’s way too much on his mind to let Gisele become a distraction,” the source told OK! Instead, Brady asked his supermodel wife to watch on the television like millions of others with their three children.

“He suggested she watch from a remote location,” the source added. The insider said that Brady’s ban on Bündchen is because of her bad behavior on game day in the past. In 2012, Tom was mortified when Gisele was caught on camera dissing his team after they lost to the New York Giants, saying her “husband cannot f***ing throw the ball and catch the ball.”

“Tom knows all of Boston, not to mention that his teammates, were stunned by Gisele’s poor sportsmanship after the Super Bowl slipped away from them,” the OK! source said. Plus, the insider added, Gisele has not been welcome to watch regular season games in the players’ family box because she “doesn’t get along with most of the other women.”

And now that one controversy hangs over the Pats as they enter the Super Bowl (the Deflategate scandal, alleging the team deflated footballs during the Jan. 18 AFC Championship Game), Tom does not want anything else to go wrong.

[From OK! Magazine]

I’m kind of torn. I would imagine Tom is too. Like, I do believe that he loves his wife and he loves how she passionately supports him, but he’s probably also aware of the fact that Gisele alienates a lot of people, including his teammates and their wives. In any case, Gisele is coming to Arizona, I have no doubt.
